Local development scheme

We produce and contribute to a number of documents that set out the planning policy framework for the city and surrounding area.

Our local development scheme sets out a timetable for the production of these documents, including updated versions of existing documents.

It’s designed to help people who are interested in local development and use of land to understand what plans we have and intend to produce.

The latest local development scheme [PDF, 838KB] was approved in October 2018. It sets out the timetable for the preparation of the Greater Cambridge local plan and the Cambridge Northern Fringe area action plan.

It also lists the neighbourhood areas that have been designated and where a neighbourhood plan is being prepared by a neighbourhood forum.

A number of supplementary planning documents have been adopted, or are currently being prepared.
